Unipulse with Roland TR 808

Post by svenmn7 » Thu Jun 11, 2020 6:27 am

Is there a manual for the TR 808 unipulse? I just bought a TR 808 with unipulse from Maciej but I have no idea how it works with midi. If I connect the Din IN with a midi keyboard or a sequencer, nothing happens. Maybe I am a fool. But please be so kind and help me. Thanx a lot!

Sven

PS: I love your products. Thank you for the development. I have a Juno 66, Mody/Poly, Unipulse TR 808 and a Unipulse for a Simmons SDS V.

You can send midi notes on channel 10, instrument mapping is standard midi. When setting the Clock switch to INPUT, you can also send midi clock and the TR-808 will sync

Hallo Tobias,

my 808 with Unipulse works great, now I need additional support, please.

If the 808 ist in slave mode and gets Midi Clock Signal from Ableton or Logic Pro, the 808 runs in double tempo!? Are there any knobs and buttons with new functions? I can't find anything in the installation manual. I pressed the red clear button (?) and the tempo changes, I switched on the top left some snobs and wired patterns were played. Maybe there is a hidden function?

Thank you very much for your help.

Best regards, Sven

Hi Sven,
I don't know why yours runs double tempo, but it is fixable.
You can adjust the clock divider using the uniPulse configurator.
You can get the configurator here:
https://tubbutec.de/unipulse-configurator/

And you will need the TR-808 config file:
(contained in the zip)
